That this House congratulates Fife Migrants Forum (FMF) on having reached its fifth anniversary in March 2016; notes that, over these last five years, the charity has played a pivotal role in welcoming refugees to Fife and supporting them in their transition to life in the UK; commends the charity on its commitment to the integration of migrants and to improving education and tolerance of other cultures and races; recognises that FMF was at the forefront of the recent effort to welcome refugees to Fife who had been displaced from their home in Syria through its Fife Welcomes Refugees project; further notes that the charity has strived to promote a positive image of refugees and their integration into life in the UK through programmes including its Bloody Foreigners initiative, which aims to increase the number of blood donations from both migrants and those already residing in the UK; and looks forward to many more years of FMF improving community cohesion in Fife and enhancing awareness and tolerance of the rich tapestry of cultures and races in both Fife and all of the UK.
